Injuries have forced the withdrawl of four players from the national team training camp in Sydney this week.
Injuries from last weekend-s round of the Hyundai A-League and have forced the withdrawal of Adelaide United-s Zenon Caravella & Milan Susak and Gold Coast United-s Ben Halloran & Tahj Minniecon from a two-day National team training camp currently being held in Sydney this week.
The purpose of the camp is for Qantas Socceroos head coach Holger Osieck and Qantas Australian U23s head coach Aurelio Vidmar to have a first-hand look at players who have the potential to play for the Qantas Socceroos and Qantas Australian U23s in the future.
The Qantas Australian U23s travel to Qatar next month to face Iraq in the third round of the 2012 London Olympic Games Asian Qualifiers on the 23rd November. They will then travel back to Australia to face Uzbekistan four days later at Parramatta Stadium.
